The great north woods

So busy lately, very busy at work, projects at home, that's why no posts, blah, blah, blah. Nobody wants to hear about that.

I went to Isle Royale for my annual Sierra Club trail work trip. We had rough weather at the start and at the finish, the boat had to wait a day before bringing us back. Gale force winds and 10 foot waves on Superior are to be taken seriously. Our overall week was good, and our trail reroute looked very nice when finished.

I used two different camping ovens, and the crew really liked fresh warm brownies for desert.

Of course, when we arrived in Houghton, we had to do a little window shopping while waiting for the boat to make way. Here is a shot from the outdoor store we browsed.

It was a relief to see such a well stocked store up in the UP, as I only had one set of nunchaku in my backpack. Several of us stocked up.

More photos from the actual island coming soon.
